A name in Armenian.

Note that this tag is useful when object has names specified in more than one language:

  • If name=* is in Armenian then it specifies which language is used in main name tag
  • If name=* is in a different language then it specifies name in Armenian


Note that even if Armenian population will be fully expelled from Nagorno-Karabakh (see ) then it is not valid to remove name:hy=* and in case of changing name=* tags then Armenian name must be kept in name:hy=* as Armenians names are still in use.

See thread for discussion concerning this.
